Lindsey Buckingham Cancels European Tour: ‘Health Issues’

Share This:

Lindsey Buckingham has announced the cancellation of the remaining shows of his European tour, due to “ongoing health issues.” He shared the news on Oct. 2, one day before his 73rd birthday. He had performed just two concerts, including one in London on Oct. 1. No mention was made of his U.S. tour that’s scheduled to begin on Oct. 26., with the first of 17 shows.

The European tour represented the first solo dates of his career on the continent. The cancellation announcement noted, “Lindsey sends his deepest apologies to all of his fans who were planning to attend and hopes to return to Europe in the future.”

The tour continues to support his well-received 2021 self-titled album, his first solo LP in a decade. The New York Times raved that the album was “A blend of California-sunny power-pop and partly cloudy ballads, perhaps the most straightforward release of his solo career.”

Lindsey Buckingham was his first solo release since 2011’s Seeds We Sow and follows his departure from Fleetwood Mac. As with the seven studio and three live albums he has released as a solo artist beginning with 1981’s Law and Order, the recent project showcases Buckingham’s instinct for melody and his singular fingerpicking guitar style.
